Let's be honest for a second here. If you grew up in the 90s, chances are that one of the very first things you do when you first got access to the internet was typing 'space jam' on your browser.
That would've taken you to an old-fashioned and pretty basic official website about that legendary movie, with some interactive games and features. But not much more. No matter how many times you tried to get anything new out of the website, you couldn't, until you finally stopped trying.
But now, on the verge of the release of the long-awaited sequel, 90s kids can finally type those words again on their browser, as the website has been updated for the first time in 25 years.
For the moment, you can only watch the official trailer, read the synopsis, or check out the film's official social media accounts, but it's just a matter of time before we get new unique features, you can rest assured of that.
"Welcome to the Jam! Basketball champion and global icon LeBron James goes on an epic adventure alongside timeless Tune Bugs Bunny with the animated/live-action event “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” from director Malcolm D. Lee and an innovative filmmaking team including Ryan Coogler and Maverick Carter. This transformational journey is a manic mashup of two worlds that reveals just how far some parents will go to connect with their kids.
When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way," reads the synopsis.
Space Jam: A New Legacy starring LeBron James will come to theaters on July 16 and will feature other NBA stars like Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, and Anthony Davis, plus WNBA legend Diana Taurasi.
